Iraqi Police: Baghdad Bombs Kill 18, Wound 52

BAGHDAD (AP) - Iraqi police say the toll from a double-bombing
in eastern Baghdad that targeted traffic police has increased to at
least 18 people dead and 52 others wounded.
An Iraqi police official says the first blast Wednesday morning
was from a car bomb. Moments later, a roadside bomb went off nearby
targeting people rushing to the scene.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not
authorized to speak to the news media.
The U.S. military says a roadside bomb exploded near an American
patrol hours earlier in the same area but that there were no deaths
or injuries.
